Leven Carrs – Building a Wetland

Leven Carrs was once an extensive wetland, rich in wildlife. But after years of drainage, starting in the Roman times, the land became an area of agriculture and pasture. Now, in an example of how modern farming and wildlife conservation can benefit each other, the Leven Carrs project, undertaken by Albanwise Ltd and Natural England, has led to the reinstatement of this once lost wetland and the biodiversity it supports.

A video of the work undertaken at Leven Carrs has been created and can be viewed on the following YouTube link: Leven Carrs – Building a Wetland
